Guest blog: The social cost of big biomass – Greener Leith News – Greener Leith | Community Involvement | Sustainable Development | Better Public Spaces | Leith, Edinburgh
I saw that Greener Leith is dealing with the proposed biomass plant in Leith. Another is proposed for Grangemouth near where I live. I am glad that the sanity of growing trees abroad for import to run a power station is being questioned. It’s a lunacy which just compounds the problems caused by our over consumption, the pillaging of third world resources and the removal of land from habitat protection and agriculture for a spurious use. It’s certainly not ‘green’ because trees are technically a renewable resource.
